    Year ago the Makita girls would come over for the HeManSale and give out signed posters for the gang Boxx, that was alway good.

    Almost forgot….I did get an electricians tote, a BBQ spatula, and a T-Shirt from Rolair compressors a few years back. I don’t need the tote, so I’ll likely give it an electrician buddy, the T-Shirt was too small so the wife wears it, but the BBQ spatula has been getting to flip lots on the BBQ.

    I got a Pebble smart watch that I won at a open house for the place I buy siding from. That was cool, I gave it to my daughter. I also won a radio at one once.

    The freebies I use the most are shirts and sweatshirts. I guess I can not forget the pencils also. I hate some of the trinkets that are given out hat really have no purpose and get thrown away. I would rather have a few pencils or something useful. the other thing I see a lot Is cheap pens. give me a good gel pen any day.

    Just recently got a pair of UVEX safety glasses, was surprised that they are manufactured by Honeywell.
    There was a link off their site to request a sample and they actually contacted me asked a few questions and in a week I had a pair shipped out to me.
    So far they have been great, no steaming up while working with a mask.

    I go the waste management facility near me and pick up free paint and finishes from their recycling center. Cost me $5 to dump my garbage and get $40 worth of stuff. I’m waiting to cash in some points on here and that’ll be the best freebies ever.

    We get a lot of ball caps over here. I have some Bosch caps around. I keep one in the van and I have a stock pile of new ones.

    you should’ve bought another pebble then, it is the sweetest watch I own. It works so well for relaying me the important messages when I am preoccupied.

    I get pencils by B the box of 100.lumberyard love. My best freebie was a 1400.00 Stabila rotary level. I had to sell 20k worth if composite in one month. They Reeve me 100.00 gift card for every 1000.00 of decking I bought.

    Same here. A Carpenter pencil is useful, always needed, and who wants to pay for one?

    Free food is aways a hit.
